It began with the construction of the Burj Al Arab by the Jumeirah Group, and since then Dubai set itself at the top of the world stage by attracting the world’s elite who are always searching for the next hot destination. The momentum has continued even with the economic downturn as the initial investments from the Jumeirah Group have now been followed by some of the strongest international hotel brands who have opened new facilities looking to still capitalize on one of the world’s strongest hotel markets. Although some see the regional market as offering strong competition for the Dubai Holiday market share we anticipate the regional players such as neighboring Emirates - Abu Dhabi and Ras Al Khaimah as only offering a secondary extended vacation option for those choosing the Dubai Holiday destinations, as they have not come close to matching the Dubai in the quantity or quality of attractions they have to offer.
Regional players such as Qatar and Bahrain are also well vying for a similar meaningful chunk of the Holiday market share for their regions, however; Dubai has developed and proved that it has a long-term sustainable plan to grow its tourist base from what have been traditionally its sun, sand and shopping mantra with a more diverse offering of conference, corporate and family options to compete on a global scale with the other global leading destinations, even through difficult times. Dubai Holiday growth will predominantly occur in this diversification into other sectors such as Health and Financial tourism. Dubai Healthcare City and Dubai International Finance Centre are two big initiatives that epitomize this attempt at diversification and are more emblematic of Dubai’s attempt to revolutionize its trading reliance and has added to its tourism industry.
Although it has experienced some effects of the economic downturn, Dubai is far from shutting its doors as a world leader in tourism and trade. In fact, Dubai is no longer considered a place only for the internationally elite, it has made Dubai more affordable to people from all walks of life. It continues to attract visitors through such things as the Dubai Shopping Festival, known as Dubai Summer Surprises (DSS), where bargain can be had at up to 75% off. Also, many of Dubai’s hotels are currently offering some fantastic packages, making it quite reasonable to afford a 5-star holiday in this amazing city. There has also been a rise in the number of hotel apartments being offered for those looking for a more relaxed and less costly alternative to staying in a hotel, and there are many great deals to be had in that arena. Whether it’s a 5-star hotel, a 2-star hotel, hotel apartment, or holiday rental, Dubaishortstay.com offers the best deals available.
